Debate Cheers and Boos


Ken Stiggers

Miss Doodle Mae: “Now that fall and the presidential election are here, Jojo is ready to make things happen for his loyal customers and faithful staff. As an enthusiastic member of the Ghetto Science Team’s Political Action Committee, he is on a mission to organize motivational sales and voter-drive activities at Jojo’s Discount Dollar Store for residents of the Ghetto Science Community.

“Jojo got things started with the After Hours Presidential Debate Viewing Party and Sale, where customers had the opportunity to shop in the store and view the debate at aisle 7-1/3.

“Special thanks goes to Aunt Tee Tee Hustle’s Mobile Ghetto Geek Squad for setting up the high-definition video projector and big screen. Brother Hustle, our part-time cashier, graciously provided refreshing Juicy Juice on ice and light snacks to boost customer satisfaction.

“Also, Jojo, the staff and I were pleasantly entertained while customers cheered and booed during the debate. Senior citizens watched intently when the presidential candidates expressed their views about Medicare and Social Security. And the unemployed deejays, emcees and young people focused in on the candidates’ plans to improve the economy and create more jobs.

“Jojo can’t wait to have an After Hours Vice-Presidential Debate Viewing Party and Sale. And it’s a big ‘you-know-what’ deal, because he is a fan of the vice presidential candidate from Scranton, Pa.

“Therefore, you are cordially invited to ‘shop til you vote’, during two more debate-viewing parties and sales events at Jojo’s Discount Dollar Store.”
